Malden Councillor-at-Large Karen Colón Hayes stated: “I would like to welcome Dr. Jessica Santos, the inaugural Director, who brings with her over a decade of experience in participatory, community-engaged research methods to advance immigrant, economic and health justice. I am looking forward to working together in Malden to elevate the voices and contributions immigrants have made to the fabric of American culture.”
